The Malware Museum

Mikko Hypponen

The Malware Museum is a collection of malware programs, usually viruses, that were distributed in the 1980s and 1990s on home computers. Once they infected a system, they would sometimes show animation or messages that you had been infected. Through the use of emulations, and additionally removing any destructive routines within the viruses, this collection allows you to experience virus infection of decades ago with safety.

Malware Example: CASCARE.COM *CASCARE.COM - upon invocation, CascadeScare (tm) will become resident. After a brief pause, the characteristic rat-a-tat sound of the Cascade virus and its nifty falling letters effect will be seen. This will continue intermittently, for as long as CascadeScare is resident. If the computer is in graphics mode, only the rat-a-tat sound effect will be noticed.
